COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Launched on December 26th 1989 @ 9% abv. Abv reduced from 9% to 8.5% in 2003.
The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

Tap at Flying Pie on Fsirview: Gold with a light head. Yeasty aroma with an ultra yeasty taste, grains and alcohol. The main thing I liked about it was that it had a nice, smooth finish. Otherwise, I am not a huge fan of Belgians.

illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured a beautiful golden color, small foamy white head. Good malty taste, sweet, medium finish. Spicy with hints of nutmeg, straw, a little acidic. Great warm-weather brew and it packs a nice punch.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 10, 2007
Nice bottle. Pours a nice dark golden hazy colour with a very nice head. Aroma of well toasty malt, spices, hops and yeast. Flavour is sweet with a very nice spiciness, good deep toasty maltiness, nice hoppiness, fruity, yeasty and alcoholic. Long lasting deep spicy bitter finish. Very good beer!

Bottle. Taste of fruit, orange and peach. Aroma of grass and flowers. The colour is pale and it contains flakes of yeast. Small head, a very enjoyable beer.

glennmastrange (2567) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Tap. This beer had a bit of harshness, or rather a lack of mellowness I believe from being out of a keg. Aromas of hay, lemon, herbs, clove and a noticable musty note. Head was white and fully diminished and the beer was a fairly clear yellow. Taste started acidic and ended both acidic and bitter. Light and dry on the palate it also has a fizzy carbonation and leaves off slightly astringent.

churchill00 (154) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle @ Gingerman, Austin. Pours golden, lots of rocky white head. Spices and fruit dominate the aromas. Sweet, citrus taste. Medium finish. Very good.

Aroma of spicy yeast and some mild citrus. Thin alcoholic mouthfeel, tastes sweet and finishes dry. Enjoyable beer.

bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2007
On tap. Golden with a big white head. Very citrusy (orange) and yeasty. Sweet and sour. Medium body... high alcohol. A great beer, but not my favorite of this style.
